Some "allergichobbit" rocks...
« on: December 10, 2013, 02:26:32 am »
Patrick was kind enough to send me a box of spalls and flakes from his local stone, so I made this set. Gotta say I really like this stone especially the grey stuff ! These average 118gr. and will be headed up to NY. Hope one ends up in the motor room of a deer ~

Thanks again Jackcrafty !

Wow, talk about uniform.  People over there must get such a kick out of seeing your stuff.

Yeah at first they would come up all shy and ask what I'm doing now they walk up and ask what style of arrowhead I'm working on !

Wow!  You really put that stone to good use.  Those are sweet!

The non-heat treated grey stuff is quarried Georgetown flint and was pulled out from deep deposits.  It has a different workability than the surface-collected flint (the quarried is much easier to pressure flake).  The heat-treated stuff is shinier than the raw.

Yeah the grey stuff pressure flakes like a dream ! That stuff isn't heat treated? I would not have guessed that. The brown type that looks like it comes from cobbles I would assume is heat treated. I have tried some of that cobble that I know wasn't heat treated and it was harder than my pecker in the morning!  >:D The brown rock reminds me of some rock we have in Tampa Bay called ledge (fossilized algae) I broke a couple bifaces it seemed susceptible to shock more than the grey stuff.

Well, they both were a pleasure to work much appreciated !

Wow those are amazing.  You can't ask for better consistency in a set like that.

Some of that rock is translucent.  If you hold it up to the sun against a dark background you can really see the colors.

Jordan, I think I sent you a higher proportion of raw stone than I sent to Elijah (I can't remember).  Try heating some of the tough stone if you are having trouble with it.
